The department of General Surgery & Laparoscopic Surgery at Ramesh Hospitals offers advanced surgical care and support for patients with acute illness or injury, based on a multi-disciplinary approach. The team here, comprising of highly experienced Surgeons, trained nurses and ancillary staff, is capable of handling even the most complicated cases – emergency or planned admission.It is one of the finest facilities of its kind in the region, offering Outpatient, Inpatient and 24/7 Emergency Care. Laparoscopic Surgery, also called minimally invasive surgery (MIS) or keyhole surgery, is a modern surgical technique in which operations are performed far from their location through small incisions (usually 0.5–1.5 cm) elsewhere in the body. There are a number of advantages to the patient with laparoscopic surgery versus the more common, open procedure. Pain and hemorrhaging are reduced due to smaller incisions and recovery times are shorter. The key element in laparoscopic surgery is the use of a laparoscope, a long fiber optic cable system which allows viewing of the affected area by snaking the cable from a more distant, but more easily accessible location.
